Systematic and faunistic information on the Palaearctic species of the predatory genus Sciapus Zeller, 1842 is reviewed. New records for known species are given.

Sciapus cornuflexus Parent, 1938 is placed in synonymy with S. albifrons (Meigen, 1830). The taxonomic status and characters of some species of the genus are discussed. A check list of Palaearctic species of Sciapus is compiled, as well as a revised key to 66 species based mainly on male secondary sexual characters, and 5 species groups are defined.
